Abstract: Nanoparticles exhibit unique physical properties (such as particle aggregation and photoemission, and electrical and heat conductivities) and chemical properties (such as catalytic activity), and hence have received much attention from scientists and researchers in different areas of biological sciences. In this review, we briefly summarize the major types of nanoparticle that have been used so far and discuss the possible applications of these nanoparticles in biological and environmental research, and the potential environmental and health impacts associated with the use of these nanoparticles. © 2006 The Society for Biotechnology, Japan.
